Sample January – I did it!

Hello! I’m so proud to tell you that I accomplished my challenge “Sample January” as I used completely all my samples which I have collected during 2015! It was pretty hard for me and for my skin, but anyway – it went quite good as I discovered some amazing products. But, I should tell you, more than maybe 70% of the samples weren’t that good in my opinion. Because they are a lot of products to describe I decided to make it easier:

 

Рroduct = Top/Flop + Short Description + Would buy/Won’t buy it
